Sunday photoblogging from Thursday AND from today...

i spent most of the day on thursday outside... it was a magnificent day... first, i biked to parque saavedra and did laps before kicking back on a bench in the sun... after i got back to my place, i simply couldn't stay indoors, so i walked over to plaza lima to watch the sunset... it was an afternoon for light and clouds...

this morning, it was chilly and breezy but with bright sunshine and a brilliant blue sky... i decided to take in a sunday buenos aires tradition, feria san telmo, the antiques fair... unfortunately, there are too many anglos there to suit me, but it's a great place for people-watching while sipping a cafe con leche and nibbling on medialunas... i managed to grab the following video clip of tango dancers who are always on hand to show off their skills for the turista and make a few pesos...

i walked around some more and then headed off for a late brunch at restaurant macama where i had an excellent omelette and several hours of terrific conversation with some friends... yes, today was a great day, just one of many here in argentina...
